Nissan Maxima 2010 on sale in GCC
After years of selling an outdated decade-old version of the car in the UAE, the all-new 2010 Nissan Maxima has finally gone on sale in some GCC markets. Quietly available in showrooms, the V6-powered front-wheel-drive midsizer aims to be a budget “sports” sedan and hails from Nissan’s American operations now.
The 2010 Nissan Maxima, introduced in the U.S. market late last year, is powered by a 290 hp 3.5-litre V6, with peak of torque of 353 Nm at 4400 rpm. Contrary to its sporting intentions, the only transmission available is a CVT with redundant paddle shifters. All come standard with ABS and stability control.
As dug up by one of our readers, Mohammed, the entry-level Maxima S model comes with an auto-dimming mirror, cloth upholstery, cruise control, CD stereo, Bluetooth, power windows, intelligent key with starter button, power front seats, “wood-tone” trim, sunroof, 19 inch rims, and dual-zone automatic a/c with rear vents.
The Maxima SV adds power outside mirrors with LED turn signals, digital compass, HID headlights, fog lights, power-adjustable steering column with memory, power-adjustable pedals, front and rear parking sensors and an optional navigation system screen with rearview camera.
The top Maxima SR gets additional features such as auto-dimming driver-side mirror, leather seats, driver’s seat thigh support extension, rear bucket seats, climate-controlled driver’s seat, rear-window power sunshade and a rear spoiler.
